Hello,
I would like to ask the following
When we want to know if someone has finished his breakfast /meal (the question is made by a waitress)
Which one is correct
1.Have you finished your breakfast /meal?
Or
2.Are you finished your meal?
What is the meaning of Are you finished? Is it polite?
Thank you in advance

Hello Nagie23,

The first one is correct (with 'have'). The second version is not grammatical.

 

You can say 'Are you finished?' (without an object after it) and it can be polite if it is said in an appropriate tone. However, it could be ambiguous as it could refer to other things than a meal. 'Have you finished your meal?' is the best option, I think.

Thank you
I have 2 questions
Is it correct to say
Could you help me to move the armchair?or could you help me moving the armchair?
Furthermore
Whenever I would like to make a question in this site ,I can't find the 'comment ' part in order to make a new question,that is why I wrote my question to an existing comment(reply)
Thank you in advance

Hello Nagie23,

The correct form is 'help me to move' or 'help me move'.

Have you tried scrolling to the bottom of the screen to make a new comment? That's where I see the space to write one.

If you don't see a space to reply at the bottom, please let us know what device and browser you're using and I'll pass it on to the technical team so they can take a look at it.
